Pretty little dot..
Saw it earlier on it's way past. Had to explain to the wife what the bright white dot was and why it was moving so fast.

It's easy to override, obvious to the pilots and whilst confusing not immediately dangerous (unless the pilots fail to take any action and the air space is very crowded with another aircraft loitering around where the plane would turn into).
On top of that as soon as it was reported Bombardier investigated rather than ignore the issue and write it off as pilot error.
Pretty much the polar opposite of what Boeing did...
Of the stove tops I've got 3 (a one espresso, a 6 espresso and a 9 espresso sized).
Sadly the 9 has developed a hole in it, the 6 is some IKEA version that never quite got the pressure high enough without burning the coffee first but the one shot works perfectly and has seen more use in the last 2 months than the previous 20 years my wife owned it.
Local roasters along with supplies of Kopi-O are keeping me caffinated and sane through all this current madness.
Tea before bed though. I'll give them all that much.
If I doesn't leave the cup the same colour as bitumen then it's not trying hard enough.
I recommend Kopi-O from the Far East for this trick. The stuff you can brew is strong enough that the bag can be reused for lesser mortals pallettes. As for me, I take the stuff strong enough to stain the cup, the stainless sink and anything porous within a yard of the cup.
And then when you've drunk it you can hear smells, code in 7 dimensions and achieve harmonic resonance with nearby glassware...
It's great. Though I do wonder if it should be a controlled substance by this point.
On your point 3... did the article mention that people said 'Hey Siri' ? No, no it doesn't.
On the flipside, how do you think Siri knows you've said 'Hey Siri' ? It's got to have a live mic to be able to hear the command word. What's happening is this live mic is actively recording and feeding back whatever the mic captures that is not explicitly 'Hey Siri'.
Now, you might be right in that Siri cannot listen without the command word, but that doesn't mean the device containing Siri cannot listen either. It HAS to listen to be able to trigger Siri. One cannot happen without the other.
Now, go back and think more critically over what you've said.

Gimme a hard copy right there.
Mines the dirty raincoat with the copy of 'Do androids dream of electronic sleep?' in the pocket...
Having developed stuff to work with adwords, this isn't new behaviour. They've been doing this sort of sudden change with little to no warning for at least a decade.
Yes they'd send emails, but I never once remember receiving one that explicitly warned me that an upcoming change was going to set a bin fire again that would then be my problem to fix again. Even more fun when they drop documenting API calls. That was a fun few weeks trying figure out camelcase/bem/strongly typed APIs with only a vague error response to go on.
Point that opinion at..
As for assuming this is aimed purely at the registers usual British readers, I'm pretty confident this is not for them. The site does get its occasional infiltrators from other news agencies or even cited in court rooms and I'm pretty sure it was spelled out before the first US of A based lawsuit was aimed at them or FOX news tried quoting it as fact.
Don't forget, sarcasm is often missed by those with an agenda and taking irony seriously has lead to things like scientology becoming a thing so sometimes it's better to assume the reader is abit lacking and spell things out.
$1b+ of gamer focused hardware, they've sold $1b+ of gamer focused hardware.... If the owners of this product for a segment decide they want to use it only for CAD workstation stuff.. So what? If its bought by millions of people with no intention to game on the hardware, what difference to the bottom line does it make?
As with so many things involving stock markets and shares, everyone forgets that nothing is infinite (save for human greed) and this too shall pass given enough time.
Our household doubled our milk intake and even then that isn't always enough when milk in quantity is required during cooking/baking.
How do I know it doubled? We get ours from a local dairy, about 3 miles away and we doubled up our daily delivery.
They've actually reported to us current customers that they've seen an increase of trade to the point they're not taking on new customers. Swings and roundabouts for all in this.
I have a stash of beer in the cellar for just such purposes. So far the oldest I've got is 7 years and counting but of the newer purchases is a beer with a best before date of 2049... Also got some biiiggg 750ml barely wines aged in a Spayside whisky cask which isn't going to see the light of day for at least another decade.
As for some of the other more common beers, shame.. But then John smiths, tetleys and carling always tasted off even when it was in date. Its the smaller guys my heart goes out to (though I've been ordering home delivery beers from local brewers so I've been trying to support the smaller guys).
Income or profit? Things get decidedly strained when it comes to that point. Especially with regards to taxation.
Which accounts for the GDPR regs just going "buggerit" and stating 'global'.
At least someone is reminding the US of A that it is in fact not the world police despite what it wishes.
(fun fact the states is in a very exclusive club of itself and Somalia as the only countries that demand taxes from earnings made outside of the country. Even if those earnings have already been taxed.)
The old rubber bullets also used to have issues with the police intentionally firing at the ground so the rubber would then come off the projectile before it ricocheted. Thus making it substantially more unpleasant than before.
And who says the police don't have a sense of humor or fair play..
Could have been one of the Apple hockey Puck mice that came with early iMacs. I still have no idea what possessed them to think it was a practical or comfortable design to use.
That said I recently re-acquired my iMac g3 (it was claimed parts along with others from a job where pay was not forthcoming at one point, got left in storage, given to a friend to convert to a cat carrier and now found its way back though without the original keyboard and mouse).
Lots of retro gaming to be had including a nice Marathon session and Doom on a proper CRT.
Gimp icon because you had to be one to use that sodding mouse.
On an idle pondering, has anybody ever experimented with laser beams on space objects using a satellite in orbit rather than a ground borne lase (like those boffins of an Antipodean nature)?
Seems like we could do with a few space lasers at a very high altitude to give objects the nudge they need to get out of the way or even de-orbit quicker.
Paris - because of Space (will LOHAN ever happen?)
In Yorkshire? Must have been in the nicer parts around York or Leeds... In all my schooling in North Yorkshire I never saw a mac other than the rumour of 2 Apple] ['s under the main stage basement in my second, secondary school.
Apparently they had some really good scanners or something but got left since that was pretty much all the staff thought they were good for.
Everything else was BBC micros, Windows 3.1/95, some Acorns in the music labs and a bunch of Gold mono-chrome schneider Euro PC's (which I'd swear was training us to work as spies since we had one of the listening posts up the road).
I've got a QPAD MK-80 which has been rock solid since I bought it (£20 with an AZERTY layout, but I'm a touch typer so key caps layout doesn't matter much). Only gripe is the silicone coating is looking tatty on the palm rest.
Other than that I've got a 16 year old Apple Pro Bluetooth keyboard. Which I've bought spares for because my first one died after my workplace's air-con dripped on it.
Surprisingly once you get used to how stiff the domes are in it, it's a very pleasant keyboard and each one of the domes is individual so can be replaced if required.
That said I still regret not taking home an old dell Alps keyboard from my old place. That thing was truely built to last.
No, just par for the course.
Just when we think an asteroid might come and make some adjustments to the housing market (by removing large amounts of houses) it just fizzles out into tiny* chunks like a disappointing snowball that dissolves upon impact rather than having a satisfactory thunk from the ice core inside.
* tiny on a cosmic scale.. Also depends upon the measure of a house. Any Register measurements bureau standards for a house?
I really should have taken a photo last time I flew KLM on a 777 using the older in-flight entertainment systems. On a couple of flights I managed to get Tux to show up whilst the damn thing rebooted.
The newer ones (that use a decent IPS screen rather than the crap FN screens that just needs the person in front to lower their seat and you couldn't see jack all clearly) I've yet to manage get them crap out. Maybe once the planes age abit more, they might get more susceptible to falling over.
No-one's going for the conspiracy theory angle?
This is switchzilla afterall who unlike Huawei who 'may' have installed backdoors for government shady types, Cisco verifiable have installed backdoors for government shady types. Especially since this is a firewall product, what better piece of kits to monitor internal and external traffic?
Or yeah.. Occam's razor and its just crap QA on the kit (more boring though).
Hang on, I think I hear helicopters....
To the down voter, this wasn't in reference to the end-of-times doomsday but instead to the Doomsday book. A work ordered by William the conquer and completed in 1086 to record England for the sake of defence, record keeping, land ownership and taxation. The parallels work perfectly, hence the comment.
If I remember Notepad++ has a plug in which allowed you to read and write files to FTP servers as if they where local storage. Always a useful bit for when you run everything live rather than ore-compile.
That said, this was good when there's only a couple of you, any more and proper deploy procedures need to be in place for everyone's sanity (and for finger pointing when an enevitable blamestorm happens. Any dev who's not cocked up either hasn't been working long enough, hard enough or is stubborn enough not to notice). The trick is making sure you don't screw up badly.
I recently managed to get my Granddads old micra (a hand-me-down for the wife to learn in) that sat on our drive for 3 years working again. Only 3 things wrong with it, fogged headlights, worn track rod end and the clutch is starting to go.
It is the 1ltr model though so needs to be driven with a certain amount of enthusiasm to keep up with local traffic, though as K12 its still apparently worth about as much as an iPhone 11 256gb... I think I'd rather keep the car to be honest.
On the flip side my last car didn't get nicked (handbrake failed violently resulting in it rolling into a wall) as it was an estate but had the tuners choice engine in.... I was gutted when I found out I could have pulled the engine, scraped the rest and still made 5 times what I got in scrap as complete car (Toyota corolla estate 1.6vvti for the bored).
"that's a click out of 5..."
As much as I enjoy his work, if the lock on the safe has broken enough that the keys no-longer worked, picking it would be pretty much out of the window. Hence the poor bastard having to drill through.
Also he probably bought a brand new drill for it or burned out an earlier drill as I would assume they'd burn out after the first 5 or 10 hours..
Can it run Crysis?
I would get coat but I'm already home and they sya I shouldn't leave it.
*shouts onto the street* but doesn't this mean naughty types can deploy naughty Docker servers on these switches then? How updated does it keep the host docker instance? What about the.... *sound of annoyed better half dragging a body further into the house*
I live in the suburbs of one the top 10 by population (more so if you include the metropolitan area) and we can still get farmers food delivered to us and I know they even go to the heart of the city.
What I'm surprised I haven't seen more of is good old fashioned mobile grocer's and the like (though we did get visited by a mobile fish mongers which was nice).
Potassium nitrate I can collect from the celler walls, charcoal I've got in bags for the bbq. So it's only sulfur that I'd really struggle with. That said, I won't be able to get much more than 10 grams of potassium nitrate off the walls I reckon, there's only a couple of walls it really collects on.
